    hello all, :wavey:was needing a price check on a used Kimber SS target 2 found at a local pawn shop yesterday. It has some type of corrosion on the both sides of the hammer. The guy says that rubbing some alcohaol with a rag will probably remove it. ? Also the original grips have been removed and replaced with a set of rubber wrap around Hogie. The sights are Bomar but there are no dots at all. This comes in a case with 3 used mags. The price is $850. I don't know much about Kimber 1911 nor ever owned a 10mm. So what do y'all think good deal or pass. Kimber web sight lists for $1140 new

    I like Kimbers and love 10MM but seems to me if you want a Kimber 10MM it might be better to spend the extra for a new one over the condition you describe vs price.

    I'd pass. A few months ago, I saw a new Kimber SS Target 10mm at a gun show with a price of $950.

    My local gunstore has a Stainless Target II in 10mm for $1000 NIB. If the pawn shop guy will take $700 OTD, AFTER rubbing off the corrosion for you, then get it. But I'd rather spend the extra on a new one.
